It’s no secret that the Connersville Spartans will play the toughest opponent they’ve faced this season in the Class 4A regional Saturday.
And it’s likely that the opponent, 9th-rated Southport, has not played against a more scrappy, talented team that epitomizes the word teamwork.
One thing is certain: players on both teams will give everything they’ve got when the 21-5 Spartans and 20-6 Cardinals clash in Game 2 of the regional at the Southport Fieldhouse at 12 p.m.
Game 1, which tips off at 10 a.m., pits Indianapolis North Central (22-3) against Terre Haute South (21-6). The championship game begins at 7 p.m.
